36 Hours. No Money. Where will you go?
Jailbreak is a 36 hours sponsored hitchhike taking place on the 2nd April 2018. Whether it be hitchhiking at service stations, to getting sponsored flights, the possibilities of your Jailbreak adventure are endless! Last year our winning team reached Paris, the year before that the winning team reached Hungary. Teams from across the country have been as far as Singapore, Africa and America!
How does it work? On the 2nd of April teams will set off in groups of two or three and where you go from there is completely up to you. You are completely independent in your route, destination and how you get there. Past teams have raised funds along the way, gained sponsors from Virgin trains and got free last minute flights from airport managers!
Think outside the box, you will be amazed at how generous individuals can be when you are doing something for a good cause.
What are you raising money for? Funds raised by every team will go to multiple projects supported by Enactus Sheffield, including; Motion and BioWatt. Motion is a project based in Sheffield, which helps reduce falls in elderly people through providing exercise classes in an innovative way in care homes. Whilst, BioWatt, is an international project that aims to improve the health of individuals in Tanzania. This is done in two parts; the first part is providing environmentally friendly toilets and educating locals on the impacts of open deification and the second is, through using bio-fuels in cooking, so as to prevent the harmful toxins currently produced when local residents cook.
There is an entry fee of £30 and a minimum sponsorship value of £100 to participate in Jailbreak (it is a lot easier than you think to raise the funds – talk to us if you need any help!).
Enactus Sheffield is a student led social enterprise organisation which develops and maintains these incredible projects.
